I'm a big fan of fish and chips, beer, and lively restaurants but I can't really get on board with the exceptional ratings of this place.... the portion sizes are just too big and felt very wasteful (and I am American...lol), the huge crowd was borderline stressful and we were scrambling to find a table until we had to enlist...

excellent quality fish and rather different experience. the place is great to see and a must if you visit Scheveningen. it is rather popular and therefore busy. restaurant prices reasonable, buying fish rather expensive but worthed.

The restaurant is different to the norm ... you stand in a queue, order your dish then sit down. Wait for your number to be called out (so you have to pay attention). Good fresh fish, good portions. You just need to know what to expect.

The fish at Simonis is good, but don't expect anything else, the paella, te chips or the salad is of low quality/taste, clean your own table and chair before you sit down, if not you might stick to it. The upside is a very good quality fish, fast service and low cost and a full belly when you leave.

The food is pleasantly priced, tasty and plentyfull. Pity the wine, at very good prices, for the starter arrived after we finished the course. We were frist brought the wrong wine and when checking the bill this bottle was also on the bill. All in all we will defenitely come back because the overall experience was we had a very... More

The fish is very fresh and their dishes are very good. Portions are really big and service is fast and efficient. Prices are great compared to quality and portions. One of the best places for fish in the Hague.

Every time we come to Den Haag to visit my brother and his family, a stop by Simonis would be a must - sometimes several days in a row! Invariably the same choices would be ordered: 1. Haring op toasts - freshly cut (...vers van het mes...) tender briny fillets eaten raw with toasts... 2. Slibtong baked in butter (...roomboter... More

This place is located at the harbor side, There are two entry's one for the fish shop, a lot off fresh fish really nice exposed and a lot of fish products for taking home. The second door leads you in the busy fish restaurant, you order at the balcony and search a free place, when the food is ready they... More

Simonis is an institution in the harbor. One half is a little fish market, the other the restaurant with the same atmosphere. You order at the counter then wait for your number to be called. Casual and great for lunch. The food is mostly fried, served with fries and plenty of sauces, so not necessarily the healthiest option. And portions... More

Fast food approach to fresh fish. Quick service large portions, fish is of good quality and the price is very good for what is on offer. Go there when you are in Scheveningen.
